Vigan City Islands Philippines

Vigan City Islands Philippines

The City of Vigan's tourist potential is based on its cultural heritage composed of more than 180 ancestral houses, administrative and religious structures, public squares and other historical landmarks within the poblacion, and built during the 18th and 19th centuries. Being the only surviving colonial town in the entire Philippines, Vigan is being developed as a primary tourist destination in Region I.

Vigan is a unique environment in both its natural and man-made features. It is traversed by two river systems namely; Govantes River and Mestizo River. Its tributaries flow into the Pangada River in Sta. Catalina, Caoayan River in Caoayan, Boquing River in Bantay and the Bantaoay River in San Vicente.

Unlike other municipalities with towering mountains, Vigan is mostly plains with gently rising hills on the southern portion. Most of its lands are devoted to agriculture which are located outside of the urban center or poblacion. The coastal plains found along the western side of the city bounded by the South China Sea are predominantly settled with Mindoro Beach as its location.

Philippines Cuisine History and Influences

During the pre-Hispanic era in the Philippines, the preferred Austronesian methods for food preparation were boiling, steaming and roasting. The ingredients for common dishes were obtained from locally raised livestock. These ranged from kalabaw (water buffaloes), baka (cows), manok (chickens) and baboy (pigs) to various kinds of fish and seafood. More details at Philippines Cuisine History and Influences
